I just don't want to run the risk of someone else damaging it... too many possible complications.
Any links to more photos of yours??
No more pictures at this time... I'll post a few of when I bought it, and while I owned it but was broke (IE: in the military!) I am starting to build on it now, but have not had the motivation or time to clean it up for pictures yet...
GotMyDub, that mk2 is GORGEOUS.
Currently building an '85 GTI for ICSCC Conference Racing
I also auto cross this baby:
A couple of the ones I've had in the past:
The red one I miss so much:
Flipped this one.

Is that your bfs car or something? Or did you buy it from a guy recently? I can't remember his SN but I have TONS of photos of that car which I saved on my old computer years ago and the owner was a guy.... maybe it's just a look-alike? Awesome car regardless.Originally Posted by Moofluffen;67887190
Here's what the car looked like when I purchased it:
All stock, original 16V, not even an aftermarket CD player. Only the ugly Ronal R8s which I removed rather quickly lol.

That Jetta I bought not running, $700 bucks! Simply swapped out the blown head for a rebuilt one, did the seals, etc. Lowered it on Tokikos with HOR springs and sold it for $2k! The Red GTI was my pride and joy. Peppiest 8v ever. I do 90% of the work on my cars. Brendon hops in when I don't have the strength to lift something! haha I help out with the TraksClothing racecar, and I'm currently building my own conference road race car as well However, atm, I'm driving my big lifted Jeep and a snowmobile!
Oh, here's one photo I had saved of his car aka your twin: Jazzman, that's his name. Little different wheels now that I look at it but almost the same!

Thanks for the props I try to do as much work on my GTI as I can. I have more time to focus on it now that the MkIV is sold and it's my only build (I've got an '08 Volvo S40 T5 AWD 6MT on KW V1s and awaiting wheels that I daily the rest of the time and a Toyota FJ to mess around with). I've just got to commit some money to buying a donor car with a 1.8T so I can do a mild turbo build and stuff it in the GTI for a little more "go"
Best of luck building the road race car! Sounds like a cool project. Any planned motor specs for it?
and yeah, if you have some pics of my car's twin post 'em up! I've only seen one other set of these wheels but they were 1pc version. I'd love to see some pics of other sets
EDIT: Jazzman's car is awwwwesome. One of the big inspirations for me getting a MkII. His wheels are actually OZ Turbos, though. Amazing car for sure.
